The taxation of companies and legal entities is undergoing a radical change that merits a review of your company’s tax strategy.

We guide you in optimizing the structure and capital of your company and in planning the transfer of your company in a timely manner.

We also establish alternative solutions, designed especially for you, adapted to your objectives. Real innovations will be implemented in full discretion and in compliance with the legislation. Numerous foreign structures, notably in Luxembourg, Belgium, Hong Kong, Estonia, the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere, may prove to be more efficient for your tax purposes.
